     The backwater action has been hit or miss for most of us lately in our immediate area. That is sure to change as the weather pattern has become more stable.

    It is safe to say the spring fishing has officially set in. The mahi mahi are biting in the Gulf Stream, the king mackerel are feeding depths of 80 100 feet and the Spanish mackerel have shown up in good numbers along the beach.

    In addition to all the great fishing, the weather finally decided to cooperate this weekend as well. Therefore, just about every angler in Brunswick County tried his or her luck on the action — including myself.
